A Fish Tale

Do you ever consider becoming a fish?

It only takes a gill of saltwater in your memory

and your lungs, switching to a pair of gills.

The rest, remains the same.

You smell, you feel, you love or hate.

It's just that you lack the memory of all!

I guess, that's the way guilt or pain flows to oblivion...

... And i'm now, too old to repent

and too soft to endure.

I just need to breath... again.



Portrait of Evelyn Brent by Charles Gates Sheldon c.1928
